Pakistan on Thursday accused India of committing 542 ceasefire violations in 2017 that killed 18 and said the "belligerent attitude" of its neighbour is a threat to regional peace and security.

The meeting, to be held at Singh's residence, comes ahead of the monsoon session of Parliament, beginning Monday, when Opposition leaders are preparing to put the government on the mat over the Kashmir situation and the face-off with China at Doklam Plateau in western Bhutan. Although the Agni-4 will be capable of striking targets in almost all of China from northeastern India (including Beijing and Shanghai), India is also developing the longer-range Agni-5, a three-stage, solid-fuel, rail-mobile, near-intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of delivering a warhead more than 5,000 kilometres (3,100-plus miles), it said. "India's current actions have not only encroached on China's territorial sovereignty, but also impaired the independence of Bhutan, one of the world's smallest countries, which is closely allied with India", the Xinhua commentary said.

The Marxist leader said the "present border fracas" has assumed "greater salience" given the growing number of issues on which the two countries have differences, which he added, have "aggravated" after the Modi-led government was formed in 2014.

China has repeatedly told India to withdraw its troops from the area for the month-long stand-off to end. India is not only Bhutan's main development partner but also its largest trading partner.

Former Indian foreign secretary Lalit Mansingh said: "Mr Modi has built up this tough image back home to defend interests and punish those harming India".

Opposition leaders have been criticising the government for the way it has handled China and Kashmir.
